Creative Youth

My younger students never cease to amaze me with their thirst for learning and ability to absorb such vast amounts of information. The learning curve these past weeks has shot off the chat and I don’t believe life study interruption and rendering has ever been done so well in the 8-10 minute time limit given in this exercise. Can you guess who the life model was?

What is really impressive is the wonderful proportional length in the arms, many many students make the arms to short.

    Adriana’s was amazing, a child so young to draw with such detail and Alec’s was so abstract that it fitted the painting.
